Catherine Theresa Marie Muzilla, passed away on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at the Forum at Knightsbridge in Columbus, Ohio while under the care of Ohio Health Hospice.  She was born in Lorain, Ohio on June 27, 1942 to the late Catherine A. Muzilla (nee: Chrzaszcz) and Stephan J. Muzilla.

Catherine graduated from Clearview High School, Class of 1960, and went on to further her education at The Ohio State University, where she earned both a Bachelor’s in 1966, and a Master’s in Education. As fifth-grade teacher in the Worthington Public Elementary Schools for 38 years, Catherine was known for her prowess in teaching English grammar to her students.  She also imparted her English expertise onto her many nieces and nephews, whom are all better for it.
